Bryan Singer has confirmed that X-Men: First Class 2 will revolve around the Days of Future Past comic run.

Singer exclusively told IGN that the script is being written now, adding ďItís going to be very ambitious. Itís called Days of Future Past and it deals with aspects of that comic but also some very new things but I donít want to give any of it away. Matthew Vaughan will be directing and Iím totally excited about it.Ē

I'm worried. I think they will try to cram too much information into the movie and it will suffer because of it. Or they will change too much.

That's a very ambitious story to bring to the big screen. I would be shocked if it was one movie. I don't see how that would be possible without serious cuts.

Yeah, after my nerdgasm finally subsided, I started to think about all the ways it could get screwed up. Not having sentinels, choosing weaker team members, changing the story too much, etc. But really, after the brutal rape of the Dark Phoenix saga (aka X3) I think I can handle anything. I'm not saying I'll automatically like it, but it can't be as soul crushing as X3 was.

That said, I'm still far more excited than cynical. We've had five X-men movies now and none of them have been great in my opinion. So I'm glad they are taking a risk with a major story line.

Suprisingly, I liked First Class probably the best. I didn't think I would. So, I'm interested in seeing what he can do with this storyline.

And if there's no Sentinels, there's no point.

Absolutely. At the very least there needs to be sentinels in the future, hopefully with some great action scenes. Maybe even showing them kill many of the X-men.

I would love it if they went further and established the sentinels in the present too so that, either the end of the movie or the next movie it could be similar to the "Final Decision" episode from the animated series with an epic battle against the sentinels. Unfortunately, I don't think they would go that route, but I think there are a lot of ways you can tell this story and it can still be good.

I just really hope they use the right characters and give them the scenes they deserve.

The X-Men movie series needs to be rebooted period. Especially since The Avengers have shown they are willing to go with absolute fantasy (deep space threats, "Gods") and not try and fit them into the real world.

If you reboot the X-Men it needs to be the original five members. Use that cast to fight Magneto and have their battle bring mutant existence to the public eye.

Then in the next movie have it set so many years later with Senator Kelly pushing the Sentinel project as a response to the "mutant" threat. And then you can bring in more characters with the sequel, like Wolverine. And meanwhile there is some mysterious figure pulling all the strings that will lead up to a conclusion in the final movie.

I couldn't agree more, but either Singer or Vaughn or both seem to like that approach. And as long as the movies do well enough to keep the X-men rights in Fox's hands, I don't think we'll get anything like the Avengers.

I hope I'm wrong though and that Singer's comment about expanding the universe means they will change direction on that front.

"This movie's gonna be not only quite epic, 'Days of Future Past,' but it also takes place in completely different times than the 'X Men' movies have taken place," he said. "There'll be new technology, new things we haven't seen before in 'X-Men' films. Certain characters and certain story and certain drama that hasn't be done yet, so it's not so much sequel. It's more of its own kinda thing."

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/02/22/x-men-days-of-future-past-director-bryan-singer-says-he-will-be-repairing-things-that-went-wrong-in-the-brett-ratner-directed-x-men-last-stand


There are science fiction aspects of the movie, and then thereís some retro science fiction that the X-Men films havenít had quite yet. So weíre exploring that, which will be fun. And thereís an attitude [difference]. We discover our characters, particularly the younger characters, at a different place in their lives. Every character you discover in this movie is in a completely different place than youíve ever seen, emotionally, and it's about them moving through that.

Jackman, Paquin, Page, and Ashmore are all returning as well. Singer has been sending mixed signals too about how much he's going to keep to the continuity of the first three films. He's said he won't ignore the events of X3, but that he will be in a position to "repair" a few things.

Just the fact that he's said we're going to see new things and technologies that we haven't seen in X-men movies before, though, has me extremely excited.

http://www.ign.com/articles/2013/07/30/trask-industries-viral-site-offers-a-look-at-the-history-of-x-men-days-of-future-pasts-sentinels

Im officially intrigued.

I was one of the few mutants(see what i did there?) that didnt fall in love with X2. The third movie is up there as one of the worst things ive ever had the misfortune of laying my eyes on, same with Origins which i was forcibly dragged to and almost set myself on fire to escape the agony.
I wasnt overly impressed with First Class except for 2 things: the interactions between Fassbender/McAvoy and Lawrence/Hoult. Especially the debates between the first pair. Admittedly watching two top tier actors debate tolerance would be interesting in many other settings.
I did enjoy the first one, but that was what...15 years ago?

So i havent had an overly high opinion of the franchise. But this new one has sparked an interest. The collection of actors theyve brought together has the potential to be something great. Fassbender, McAvoy, Page, Lawrence, Jackman have all had success since or around the same time as doing their roles. And, of course, Stewart and McKellen are money. The one big new signing they made is Peter Dinklage, which should be the new definition of a homerun. As well, Singer is a solid director who has shown an aptitude for ensemble casts.

Hopefully they release the footage they displayed at ComicCon to the rest of the public shortly.

Oh, and Gonzo complained about Berry...but the person i shudder at the thought of seeing again is Paquin.

The bad news is that they are still acknowledging X-Men 3. This was the perfect opportunity to act like it never happened and move on.

This is one of my favorite storylines, so I'm also annoyed that Wolverine is rumored to be the one going back in time. The casting of Dinklage is great though.

They are really going all out with this one. As much as all these Trask teasers, and Dinklage's casting, excites me I'm still pretty skeptical. I've pretty much felt the same way as Spesh. The first movie was the only one I liked (although the opening scene of X2 still gives me nerd chills).

Having Wolverine go back in time annoys me greatly. It's called X-men, not Wolverine and his mutant friends. X2 was supposed to wrap up Wolverine's arc and the following movies were supposed to focus on some of the other characters. If this movie doesn't treat the other team members better I will swear off this movie franchise.

I will say that I think Paquin could pull off Rogue now that she is older. I'm not saying I think she will, but maybe. (Making Rogue younger than the other team members still pisses me off to this day but if they can just write her character better I will be content).

Although after seeing The Wolverine I have to wonder how the hell is Wolverine supposed to fight a war against the sentinels with just bone claws?

While i didnt read the comic this is inspired by(though im aware of the story line), i get what you guys are saying. It gets under my skin when entertainment differs from the original material, even when its done extremely well like Game Of Thrones.
That said, im glad they decided to do what they did. If my two choices were to watching the "originals" play in both time periods or watching them combine the old crew with the First Class cast, i'll pick the combined option every time. Yes, it differs from the story but the casts they've assembled more then makes up for it. But again, i dont have the attachment that you guys did to the original source. I understand why its chaffs.

While i get that they were pretty much forced to send Wolverine back, i completely agree that they should have shifted to another main. This is going to be his 6th film, utterly ridiculous and a waste of quality material. The way Fox treated Wolverine is especially hilarious when compared to the way theyve treated Cyclops. While others got short strawed by the over saturation of Hugh Jackman, that character just got totally screwed. Its like Fox decided they were going to actively limit him in every single possible way until they could find an excuse to kill him off.

And also agree with Gonzo. Perfect chance to flat out ignore X-3. My god did it deserve to be forgotten.

Anyways, new photo showing how big the sentinel is:

Most of the time, I don't mind changes if they are at least as good or better than the source material. Some examples of that are Pyro and Stryker. Both are really lame characters in the cartoon/comics so those changes were for the better.

But as much as making Wolverine the time traveler annoys me from a character perspective (b/c I think they are going to try to make him a leader again like in X3, rather than the reluctant soldier) it annoys me more simply because we've had more than enough focus on Wolverine at this point. There are a lot of other X-men that need some love on the big screen and this storyline they are adapting provides the opportunity to do that in two different timelines. And yet, it looks like they want to still keep the focus on Wolverine in both... :bobdole:

Rogue will no longer be appearing in big X-Men sequel - despite her appearance in the film's trailer and Anna Paquin taking part in the film's panel at San Diego Comic-Con. According to Entertainment Weekly, a big rescue scene featuring Rogue, Iceman (Shawn Ashmore), Magneto (Ian McKellen) and Professor X (Patrick Stewart) has been cut from the film entirely. There was a quick shot from this sequence in the trailer, featuring Paquin, Ashmore and McKellan.

Director Bryan Singer explains, “Through the editing process, the sequence became extraneous. It’s a really good sequence and it will probably end up on the DVD so people can see it. But like many things in the editing process, it was an embarrassment of riches and it was just one of the things that had to go. Unfortunately, it was the one and only sequence Anna Paquin was in, the Rogue character was in. Even though she’s in the materials and part of the process of making the film, she won’t appear in it.”

Singer goes on to clarify that the edit has nothing to do with Paquin herself, saying the "brilliant actress" did a "fantastic" job.

They only had her film one scene? Are you ****ing serious? This is Days of Future Past. It is a license to throw up an epic action sequence and kill off a ton of the characters with no repercussions. Yes, Rogue's movie portrayal was an insult to the character but she still has one of the most badass mutant powers that can be used in many imaginative ways. This makes me worried about what they actually have planned for the future scenes.

Meant to post this when it came out, it's 25 covers of the various characters. Some look pretty bad, but some look pretty good. I like Magneto's helmet, and the future sentinel does look pretty ****ing badass.

Maybe this was covered earlier in the thread. How is it Xavier is alive in the the future version of Days of Future past? If all the previous X-Men movies effect this one, Xavier died half way through X-Men 3. How is he alive to help send anyone back to the past?

After the credits in X3, you see a woman treating some unseen person when that person uses Xavier's voice and says "Hello Moira". Earlier in the movie Xavier had mentioned something along the lines of transferring a person's consciousness. As for how it can still be Patrick Stewart, that wasn't explained but instead brushed aside in the Wolverine after credit scene. When Wolverine asks how it was possible Xavier simply says, "Like I told you long ago, you're not the only one with gifts."

As for the newest trailer. I want to know how young Xavier is walking. If this takes place after First Class then why isn't he in the wheel chair?

And Beast is in human form. Looking forward to seeing how they explain it, because they obviously highlighted those facts in the trailer for a reason.

In the comics, Prof. X has gained and lost his ability to walk so many times, I'm not sure why they bother anymore. :lol:

Very lame if that's true. Just makes him a weak ass Hulk that can do gymnastics. His inability to hide what he is defines the character.

Supposedly Beast creates a serum to hide his form and I guess it stops working if he gets angry or w/e. Lame for sure, but I can forgive it if the reason is because they are still back in the 70s before mutants are widely known to the public and they want Beast to be more involved without screwing that narrative up. Beast probably has something to do with Xavier walking again as well. Honestly it was really dumb to paralyze him at the end of First Class.
